Being left handed is bad for women? Research or Voodo Science?

I am sorry. I know, technically I am part of the "academic" community, and I am supposed to accept research, statistics and publications as means of expressions, I cannot readily accept the latest "discovery" going around, claiming that women who are left handed are more prone to breast cancer. That would make a few c.pigs among us to turn around and watch how their women write and worry about the future. It sounds very obnoxious.

The only reasoning is that "perhaps", overexposure to sex hormones previous to birth causes the gauchi-ness and changes in the breast tissue. Maybe, but then how much of this is truly scientific. I tend to think, not much!
